Q.Advice On Repotting A Christmas Cactus
I am getting ready to repot this Christmas Cactus. At one time it belonged to my grandma who has passed many years ago. I don’t believe it has been repotted since she had it. I noticed it wasn’t as vibrant this last blooming season and have decided to give it a try. I have back up cuttings just incase I am not successful repotting it.

I will add photos the last one is 3 yrs ago and how it looked then.
